#2 Storytelling

Wrestling tends to have more at its disposal when it comes to playing around with their characters

It would be rather ignorant to say that there are no storylines in MMA.

However, MMA's storylines don't begin to compare with those in pro-wrestling. More often than not, hatred among MMA fighters is born out of their desire to beat their opponent. Whether it's the weigh-ins or the pre-match banter between the fighters, the story often seems one-dimensional.

Pro-wrestling, however, tends to have more at its disposal when it comes to playing around with their characters (played by pro-wrestlers).

The world of pro-wrestling involves iconic rivalries. Like the feud of Stone Cold Steve Austin with the McMahon family or the year-long suspense of "who ran over Stone Cold Steve Austin", which eventually culminated into Rikishi confessing, "I did it for The Rock".

It's the storytelling aspect of pro-wrestling that has helped the art form sustain itself for decades.
